top vocalist


Recommended Posts

have we ever had a topic of best vocalist? I bet we have 15 threads for guitar players but have we ever done a survey of who we think are the top vocalist are? I'm not sure.

 

my list would be a simplistic list, in no order

Sammy Hagar

Michael Sweet

Jamie Rowe

Jack Blades & Tommy Shaw together

Paul Stanley

Travis Tritt

 

I'll start out with 6 but some of my favorite vocalist are not the greatest, like the fact I love Ted Poley's vocie and Ronnie Van Zant's vocie. Tom Keifer.

 

sould we do something like best voice or favorite voice? sometimes it is hard to seaperate the two.

Wow, what a list this'll have to be:

 

Freddie Mercury

Kelly Hansen

John Waite

Paul Rodgers

Sebastian Bach

Steve Perry

Hugo

Harry Hess

Jeff Scott Soto

Johnny Lima

Myles Kennedy

David Victor

Mike Matijevic

Keith Slack

Kip Winger

Paul Gilbert

 

 

Butch Walker

Michael Buble

Michael Crawford

Taylor Hansen

Faith Hill

I'm going to stop now (not that there are any vocalists left to name now) because, like Deenfan said, there are many good vocalists with many different qualities. Some of these people, you just could not imagine singing certain songs, but for some of their songs, are just perfect.

 

My head is spinning now.

Dave... am I jumping the gun here, in any way, or are you kinda fond of Paul Rogers? -I mean, as a singer...?

 

You do leave that impression. Thought I'd point it out, if you were not aware how you come across...

I assume you mean "Kory Clarke" from Warrior Soul, and not the loser dude from "American Idol" with the same name, who claimed he was bangin' Paula Abdul, right Martinsane? :D

 

Major Metal Props for David Wayne (R.I.P.) and Bobby Blitz... love'em both... Blitz is one of the few old-school thrash guys who actually sounds better with age...

    • You brought the man out of me, so many times, easily. 
    • One of my all-time favorite Christian rock-ballads.
    • I don't mind at all. That was the only way I could make you say, "Oh God!" without it being blasphemy. 
    • For the record, I would totally check out a "Do you want to Bang your Librarian?" thread. Also, when I first glanced at this post, I thought it read, "Do you want to Bang your Libertarian?" and I immediately thought, "No way in hell does anybody here want to bang Leykis." 
    • Agree...that sounds better. Still potential here and Erik makes it listenable.    This first single could've been pretty good with a different structured chorus so hopefully other tunes are a bit better. Still not sure its going to be melodic/catchy enough for my tastes which is generally my problem with this  genre.
    • My apologies, cob, but didn't Cody say "the only thing Atheists all have in common is we do not subscribe to the myth of the deity, god or higher power, of any kind, this is it, then we are worm food, not all Atheists subscribe to the same meaning or philosophy, we don't all believe in the same science, or anything, I personally feel as though..." Sorry if I misread, but that doesn't really sound like a group that are fundamentalist in their certainty. In fact, none of that really sounded to me how you describe it.  What does intrigue me, though, is that you acknowledge that we are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant... yet religious folk believe that there's a god out there somewhere and his only concern is whether this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant follows the gospel or not? And not only this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant, but every single other speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant that has ever existed? Of the entire universe throughout the entirety of time, all this god really cares about is whether each speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is following the gospel. Because if not, that speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is sure as heck going to hell. Sounds like the type of being I'd like to devote my single human life to.  Sorry dudes, like I say, I'm not an atheist (that I know of), and I'm sure as heck not a religious man. What do you call someone who is just honest enough to admit that I don't have a clue how we started, or why we are, or what will happen when we're dead? And I also believe that no one alive now, or whom has lived before us, has these answers either. Nor will they ever have them. No matter how steadfast someone is in their belief of whatever they believe, no one will ever be able to answer, with 100% certainty, those questions. 
    • And a small but important  update. Had an MRI scan two weeks back and just before I went in for a weeks chemo. The day I was discharged the doctor who discharged me gave me the results of the MRI scan and confirmed my feelings that the brain cancer had reduced in size, so everything it seems is going to plan.
    • I'd like to think so too, but I don't think it is. But I am always weary of what's being reported in Australian media. Are we just seeing everything from the hysterical, moronic and blown out of proportion version that the Aussie media feeds us? Or are there actually things happening outside of this country that are as hysterically panic driven as they are here? From the few other things I've heard, globally, it does seem that this variant has earned it's own little slice of worldwide panic, so I guess we'll see. This Panic First, Ask Questions Later mentality that the world has adopted is honestly an (even further) embarrassment to humanity. If I didn't have children I would confess that the time has certainly well and truly come for the human race to be nuked and made extinct. I ponder how much I hated humans in 2019. It took 40 years to build up that level of hatred. I am not even kidding to say that those 40 years of built up hatred has probably doubled, if not tripled or even quadrupled in the space of the two years since. What I think of what has become of the human race in the space of two years has no words left to describe it.
